Subj: [kl] Vibrato on the Clarinet
Date: Wed, 18 Jun 2003 13:04:02 -0400

At the risk of sounding silly, I have a simple question to ask. I hear
songs all the time where a clarinet is holding a note vibrato. But, I've
always been taught to try my darnedest to hold a note steady. So my basic
question is, is playing vibrato accomplished through the embouchure or the
diaphragm? I asked my aunt the same question (she has been playing for
about 20 years or so) and she hadn't a clue, never tried, she said. And,
I've been having trouble accomplishing it myself.
